PACE Newsletter

Week of April 4th-8th, 2016

Dear PACE Parents,

This week all of my classes were in different stages of the research project. Some of you will find that your child's newsletter this week is on notebook paper. I am surprised that it doesn't happen more often, but I just plain forgot to grab my copies at one school and take them to the other.

Next week, we will make the display board during class. I will have construction paper, glue, and markers available. If your child would like to bring stickers, border, sequins, ribbon, etc., then send those supplies next week.

Thanks for your support,

Meg Farley mfarley@ems-isd.net

**Save the Date** Evening with the Experts

Tuesday, May 17th, 6-7:30pm

3100 Northwest College Drive

The students will stand by their projects and have an opportunity to share information as people pass by. It is sort of like a science fair without the judging!
